Closing ceremony for master students

Around the end of May/beginning of June each year, we have a joint closing ceremony, in both Växjö and Kalmar, to celebrate those who have completed, or are about to complete, their studies at the 60- or 120-credit master’s level. In Växjö the closing ceremony takes place 29 May, and in Kalmar 31 May, 2024.

The closing ceremony is a festive afternoon, mixing speeches with entertainment, and with the new graduates being invited onto the stage to be congratulated by the faculty. The ceremony ends with some time to mingle.
